Swansea City chairman Huw Jenkins says they'll do all they can to try and keep their precious manager Brendan Rodgers.
After getting the Swans up to mid-table in his first season in the Premier League on a very limited budget, the Irishman is beginning to attract a lot of interest.
Speculation is increasing regarding his future in South Wales, with the potential vacant Spurs job being the main talking point.
Recently, Villas-Boas was sacked by Rodgers' former club Chelsea, but he ruled out a return to Stamford Bridge, saying he wanted to build his career, not 'destroy it'. The 39 year-old knows the Blues would demand instant success or otherwise he'd face the sack by owner Roman Abramovich.
There wouldn't be as much pressure at Spurs though, so would Rodgers be tempted to move to the London club if Redknapp took the England manager's job?
Who knows, but Jenkins insists they'd do their best to convince him to stay if he did consider a move.
'It's what happens when you do well - players get recognition, managers get recognition,'
'Speculation is part of football. I can't predict the future but we will do all we can to keep our manager and players at Swansea.
'If there is an approach then I will sit down with Brendan and explain as well as I can why he should stay. As a club we can take the dream further. Brendan and the players have had a lot of credit and they deserve it, but I will be doing what I can to ensure no-one leaves.
'The only thing that changes that is not an approach, it is if one of the players or Brendan come to me and say they no longer wish to be here. That's a different scenario.
'I have experienced this before when Roberto Martinez left (for Wigan). He is a young man and I understand that if offers materialise he will ask himself questions about next season, can we compete?
'I am probably one of the best people that can talk it through with him should that discussion happen. I know Brendan is very happy here but I also know that if an approach comes, then I will fight to keep him.'
